Alessandro Michele’s previous Gucci show may have been relatively light on handbags, but based on the brand’s Spring 2016 runway in Milan earlier this week, that’s not the new creative director’s preference all the time. For the upcoming season, the Gucci Dionysus, among others, are getting a remixed look with lots of extra details.

Gucci continues to lure in shoppers with beautiful bags every season and one of the most coveted staples is the Soho Disco Bag.

Gucci always hits it out of the park, and the brand’s latest line only proves what a tremendous run Gucci has been on with its handbags. I carry my Bamboo Shopper so often that it’s one of my most-used bags, and after the release of the Jackie Soft Bags, I was hooked as well.

Over the past few seasons, the most impressive thing about Gucci’s handbags is what the brand has managed to resist: over-branding, over-embellishment and over-baked design of all kinds. Every collection seems more well-edited than the last, and the results get simpler and more beautiful with every new collection released.
